  1. April Bonus Story – Chrysalis


    August 16, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place in the future.

      Kailani woke late, the sunshine streaming in the windows and warming her face. She stretched, feeling warm and refreshed, as if after a perfect night of sleep. Everything was right, everything was going well, and she had a big day ahead of her.

  2. Description: Professor Shira Pelletier


    August 12, 2016 by Lyn

    Shira Pelletier
    Professor of Science

    This description has taken me six months to write because, when I think about Shira Pelletier, I think about how she must have looked three or four centuries ago, when she earned her Name. For me, the easiest way to describe Addergoole’s science professor is to start with her there, as a young woman in the wilds that would become New York, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Ontario, and Quebec.… Read on

  3. Question: Happy Birthday?


    August 10, 2016 by Lyn

    How old are the Addergoole staff?

    Regine answers:

    The staff range in age from five hundred and nine years to thirty-seven years old: Michael VanderLinden and Ginger Cayenne, bracketing a much smaller range between them.

    Next oldest in age are Shira Pelletier and Sakamoto Shou, at three hundred ninety and three hundred ninety-three years old; next youngest in age are D.J.… Read on

  4. Jolly Old St. Nicholas…


    August 5, 2016 by Lyn

    Reid sealed the last envelope, and stacked them neatly in a pile on his desk. There weren’t that many – he didn’t speak to his father, and his mother and siblings had proven far more human than he had. Of what few loves he had had through the decades, most were also gone, and a few simply wished not to be reminded of him.… Read on

  5. Tying Off


    August 3, 2016 by Lyn

    Year Five of the Addergoole School, at the time of Book Eight and Nine
    After Loose Ends

    It was worse than they’d feared.

    Considering the state of the boys’ former Kept, perhaps it had been naïve to expect better. Perhaps it was good they hadn’t show up to find them turned into serial killers.… Read on

  6. A Quiet Place


    August 3, 2016 by Lyn

    Year Five of the Addergoole School, at the time of Book Eight and Nine

    If it seemed as if cy’Pelletier had quite a few more meetings than any other cy’ree, nobody was really surprised. Professor Pelletier could lean on her authority as Mentor to her Students to call them to her, giving the ones that needed it a quiet place.… Read on

  7. Peer Review


    August 2, 2016 by Lyn

    This story takes place in line with the story – the Sunday Night after Hell Night, the Fifth Year of the Addergoole School

    “Hey, Reid, come on in.” Laurel Valerian’s smile was open and unguarded – a quality Reid adored in her, but one that had gotten her in more trouble than she really deserved.… Read on

  8. Memorial Day Bonus Story: Remembering


    August 2, 2016 by Lyn

    Shira waited until Doug and Luca had left before she took to the road. Their grief and remembrance were important to them, sacred, and she didn’t want to impose her presence on that, nor to force unwanted conversation on the warriors – or on herself.… Read on

  9. Making a Name


    July 27, 2016 by Lyn

    The summer between years one and two of the Addergoole School

    “Are you sure?” Even as she asked, Ginger was setting out food on Maureen’s wide patio table.

    “I’m sure. You’re doing fine, dear, and people have relaxed around you. Now the trick is to make them think twice.”… Read on

  10. Chapter 178: Shahin


    July 20, 2016 by Lyn

    You could say I’m a little bit crazy
    You could call me insane
    Walkin’ ’round with all these whispers
    Runnin’ ’round here in my brain
    I just can’t help but hear ’em
    Man, I can’t avoid it

    The first Sunday in April

    Shahin lay in bed, once again between her husband and their Kept, idly stroking the scales on the back of Xaviera’s neck while the girl slept.… Read on

  11. Interlude: Pelletier


    July 13, 2016 by Lyn

    And in our blindness, do we move onward
    And cling to the lies that we have harbored?
    We could not admit we were mistaken
    But if we don’t do it now, dear God
    Could you please come down here and tell me when?
    Read on

  12. Interlude: Ambrus


    June 30, 2016 by Lyn

    Ambrus had always found Shira Pelletier a little bit intimidating. Something about the way she looked at people – men, adult men, really, and she was one of the few that counted him in that category – made him antsy.

    Today, it took an effort of will to knock on her door.… Read on

  13. Chapter 84: Jamian


    May 14, 2016 by Lyn

    If he don’t act right
    Trade him in
    If he breakin’ you down girl
    Trade him in

    Jamian thought about his conversation with Kailani all through eperu. He could have asked Professor Pelletier about the strange Word that he’d manifested, but something kept him quiet.… Read on

  14. Chapter 64: Shahin


    September 12, 2015 by Lyn

    I’d pay any price just to get you
    I’d work all my life and I will
    To win you I’d stand naked, stoned and stabbed
    I’d call that a bargain

    “Thank you again, Professor Pelletier.” The world was still more than a little cockeyed, but Shahin felt more confident as she left her newly-minted Mentor’s office.… Read on

  15. Chapter 61c: Shahin


    September 12, 2015 by Lyn

    And I need some good girl in front of me baby
    You drivin’ me crazy, yeah
    She got it written on her

    “The first thing you need to know about the Idu a’Iduþin is the manner in which its alphabet functions,” Professor Drake lectured.… Read on

  16. Chapter 36: Jamian


    August 18, 2015 by Lyn

    Forces pulling from the center of the earth again, I can feel it…

    Magic. The word made Jamian twitch, and he refused to think too hard about the concept behind it. Magic either meant that everything going on was irrefutably real, or that he’d gone off the deep end and was heavily medicated in a psych ward somewhere, where doctors could poke at him and write papers on how, genetically, hermaphroditism in men was linked to anti-social behavior and psychotic breaks; right now, he was rooting for the psyche ward.… Read on

  17. Chapter 35: Kailani


    August 18, 2015 by Lyn

    I’m learning to fly, but I ain’t got wings
    Coming down is the hardest thing

    “Nice collar.”

    One row of lockers over, Kailani cringed at the snide tone in Xaviera’s voice. The ophidian blonde woman had left her alone so far, but she had the demeanor and self-satisfaction of a bully, and Kai pitied her current target, while being relieved it wasn’t her.… Read on

  18. Interlude: Shira Pelletier


    August 17, 2015 by Lyn

    Shira Pelletier was in her office, grading papers, as she made a point of telling all her students she did every Sunday for a couple hours. It got her out of the house – a necessity, after Saturdays spent with Megan and her children – but, more importantly, it made her accessible to students in a more or less private setting.… Read on
